Xiphos Chess Engine Test

The new superstar of computer chess – Xiphos, by Milos Tatarevic. Released just few months ago, Xiphos is now dominating the field in Div 2 of the Top Chess Engine Championship. With 10 rounds gone, it has 7,0/10 and solid advantage over seasoned fighters such as Fritz, Nirvana, or Hannibal.
Xiphos is a UCI chess engine. The engine employs the modern search techniques and supports multithreading.This project is inspired by Garry Kasparov’s “Deep Thinking: Where Machine Intelligence Ends and Human Creativity Begins.” This fantastic book has evoked my childhood passion, computer chess. I was wondering how hard it could be to develop an engine strong enough to surpass the legendary Deep Blue, so I gave it a try.
